Sept. 20, 1693

Order of [Prince-]Elector John George IV and addressed to the City Council of Leipzig [Present-day Germany; Electorate of Saxony]: “[…] Since we are no longer inclined to permit these annoying beings and the idolatry of Jew to be brought in [to Leipzig] as well as into other areas of our land/domain […] we desire herewith that you should prohibit arriving Jews to attend Sukkot and their false worship in all seriousness and [at a threat of] certain punishment.” [Researcher’s note: The City Council/Senate obliges and issues a rescript for Leipzig three days later.]
